Our latest machine, the KB90 represents the ultimate progression in espresso machine design, where form meets function. Its straight-in portafilter innovation removes the need to twist as the barista operates the machine, dramatically enhancing the espresso-making experience and significantly reducing the risk of wrist injury — a game changer in the industry.
Named after Kent Bakke — former La Marzocco International CEO and now chairman of the board — the KB90 simplifies and eases the motion of locking-in the portafilter tothe group-head, and sets a new standard in performance for high volume cafés.
‘It’s always been a part of La Marzocco’s DNA to focus on the job of the barista. Twenty years ago, we started thinking that espresso machines should be operated with natural movements and motions to increase the enjoyment and speed of use for the barista. with the creation of the straight-in portafilter, I feel that we have built a machine that will forever improve the way the barista interacts with our machines.’ – Kent Bakke
